A Bodacious Snuffy Smith Fan!

We have family friends, Brett and Michelle Horton, who live in Rome, GA.  A few weeks ago they clipped and mailed me the front page story from their local newspaper, the Rome News-Tribune (which is a Snuffy Smith comic strip subscriber).  The story was titled “Fan Identifies With Snuffy” and it was about a local woman named Sue Davis who has clipped and collected hundreds of her favorite Snuffy Smith comic strips and placed them in a binder for over 50 years!  The first entry in her binder is a Snuffy Smith comic strip her future father-in-law gave her in 1964 about babies. He was hinting that he wanted lots of grandchildren one day!  From that point on, Sue began collecting and creating her own Snuffy Smith book collection!  Wow!  You can read the full story here.

Fun Week Ahead For Virginia Snuffy Smith Fans!

There are a couple of fun things going on this week for fans of Snuffy Smith in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia area!  First, I have been asked to participate in an art show by the Arts Council Of The Valley, of which I am a volunteer board member.  I am one of 32 artists participating in ACV’s 1st Annual Small Works Invitational Art Show, which opens this Friday, December 2nd. Each piece in the show has to be 12″ x 12″ or smaller.  There will be an opening reception with snacks at 5:00 this Friday evening (right before the downtown Christmas Parade).  My contribution is a black and white original india ink character drawing of Barney Google, Spark Plug and Snuffy Smith.  The show will be up through mid January, 2017 and the Arts Council Of The Valley Gallery is located at 311 South Main Street, Harrisonburg, VA 22801.  Call  540-801-8779 if you have any questions.
